The original is all i need Charlie N.

I bought my custom 500 in matte grey and i use it every day and its very comfortable even after 4 hours of usage, build quality is top notch there isn't a single flaw i have found yet. The only thing i would change is the fact that it doesn't come with a face shield out of the box, they aren't expensive though. Overall excellent helmet!

2014 Bell CUSTOM 500 a retro winner. newjack66

Bell went back and reworked the original Custom 500 w/ the new 2014 Custom 500. This helmet sits very low, fits me like a glove & is a intermediate/oval fit. The finish is up there with many of the 'high end' open faces & price is excellent.
You can put bubble visors, shorty sun lids, you name it. This helmet looks very retro but feels very modern.

I have the gloss black w/snaps and I am looking at buying another.

Well done Bell and good to see you back on top!
